More felt workshops to come....

Happy New Year 2016!

Hope you all had a wonderful seasonal break and are feeling ready for more felting adventures. My felt workshops will start towards the end of this month. The Wednesday morning needle felt workshops are open to all skill levels. It is a lovely gathering of people, inspired about felting and craft in general, sharing about projects, craft and art events and enjoying a cuppa and a biscuit as we felt and learn.  
The venue for the following events is: 63 Crowhill Road, Glasgow, G64 1QY, close to Bishopbriggs town centre and trainstation.  

Fortnightly needle felt workshops on Wednesday mornings, 10-11.30am


We use colourful wool fibers to make decorations related to Winter and nature, e.g. ornaments, jewelry, woolly fairies, gnomes, animals, flowers and more. Or bring your own ideas, what you would like to create from wool fibers. You can learn how to use a felt needle for 2 and 3 dimensional dry felting, or improve your needle felt skills. It’s fun and I warn you, you can get hooked. :-) No previous experience needed. Sessions can be booked separately. Dates for the next workshops: The next Wednesdays are:  27. January and 10. & 24. February 2016 Cost: £6.00 per session, incl. material. From March on it will be £7 per session incl. material & a cup of tea. 9. & 23. March 2016

Connect to nature and create with wool fibres- Imbolc- First signs of Spring-Needle felt workshop on Saturday, 6. February 2016, 14.00 – 17.00


In this afternoon workshop you can create your personal needle felted ornament related to the natural realm. To connect with the natural realm we’ll start with a guided inner journey.
You will then use colourful sheep’s wool fibres and a special felt needle to create a nature related ornament e.g. a fairy, a gnome, an elf, a couple of Spring flowers etc.  It’s fun to get creative in this way and you can easily get hooked!
Craft experience is very welcome and needle felt experience too, but not necessary. A complementary cup of tea will be served.
Booking in advance is essential! Places are limited to 4 participants.
Cost: £18  Please pay at the start of the workshop.
